This is a little embarrassing.

Bow Chicka Wow Wow.

Can someone please explain to me why my children are obsessed with this phrase?

It’s beginning to be a little embarrassing. Lauryn, especially, is a big fan of the phrase. I think she just likes the way it rolls off the tongue.

A babysitter even sent us a text one night: “Your children love to say ‘bow chicka wow wow.'” What could we do, but explain that Jonathan and I routinely sing that phrase to each other as we do laundry, load the dishwasher, and drive to soccer practice, and the kids have obviously picked it up from us. Or not.

This new obsession at least provided Jonathan and I with side splitting, tears rolling down the cheeks laughter a few nights ago….

The kids have pretty much appropriated my iPhone and consider it theirs. They aren’t allowed to go online using it, but they can play with some of the games and apps.

We discovered a couple nights ago that Lauryn had used the voice recorder to record herself singing about 47 (wish I was exaggerating) different renditions of Bow Chicka Wow Wow. Nice.

Click here then push the big yellow play button if you wish to hear one such example. My daughter, performing bow chicka wow wow. (If anyone knows a way to upload audio files directly to blogger, please enlighten me.)

Her first recorded performance. I’m so proud.

I know some people might find this phrase offensive, but my kids just think it’s a fun thing to say and I’m trying to just make light of it. But if you are one of those people who find it inappropriate, you might want to keep your kids away from the Cliff children for a few weeks! I’ll let you know when they move on to another phrase. Ha!

  1. Oh Starr!!!!! I cannot believe that this is happening to your family!!!

    My Lucas says this repeatedly all day long! It makes us laugh! I had NO IDEA where he got it and he couldn’t remember either. He just loves to say it, sing it, dance around saying/singing it, etc. This has been going on for almost a year!

    THEN the other day I was watching Alvin and the Chipmunks with the kids (the full-length newish movie). They’ve had this movie for a while and like to watch it, but I’ve never had the patience to sit through the whole thing. Anyway, Alvin says it in the movie while playing air guitar or something.

    SO THAT’S WHERE HE GOT IT! Whew! He’s not crazy! LOL!

  2. My nieces sing that too…they also saw it on Alvin and the Chickmunks!! šŸ™‚ Sounds like Lauryn’s speech therapy is working…I understood very clearly what she was saying šŸ™‚ TOO CUTE!!!
